We have further strengthened our UK distributor network through partnering with Berthon, a provider of comprehensive maritime services.
Based in Lymington, Hampshire, Berthon operates a diverse marine business in boat and engine sales, both wholesale and retail, commercial and leisure, and offers technical service and customer support. Berthon Power is the engine distribution subsidiary and will act as the new distributor for Neander in the UK and Ireland.
Berthon Power will now add to its portfolio the sale of the world’s only 50hp diesel outboard motor, the Neander Dtorque 50, including stocking of service parts for quick and easy shipping to end users. Berthon’s engineers will carry out warranty repairs and attentive aftersales service.
Prime applications for the Neander outboard are in the commercial offshore, military, fishing, aquaculture, rescue and charter-marine sectors. It also perfectly serves tender boat requirements on large yachts storing diesel fuel.
Berthon will be attending the following events with the Neander Dtorque 50 engine:
- Aquaculture UK: 3-5th May 2022, Macdonald Resort, Aviemore
- Scottish Skipper Expo: 13-14th May, P&J Live Exhibition Arena, Aberdeen
- Seawork: 21-23rd June, Mayflower Park, Southampton
Dominic May, Director at Berthon Power comments, “The Neander Dtorque 50 outboard motor is a good addition to our product range, suitable for smaller boats in both single and twin installations. Diesel outboards are now accepted in the market by commercial users: diesel is more freely available on the waterfront around the UK and Ireland. Plus diesel outboards use less fuel, have wider service intervals, and last longer than petrol outboards.”
Neander’s Global Sales Director, Joel Reid, comments, “I’m delighted to appoint Berthon as our representative in the UK and ROI. Dominic believes in the future of the diesel outboard industry and I cannot think of a better partner for the region.”
